The Linux kernel (at least, the 2.6.20 kernel, and I believe some earlier

Thanks for the info! I'll look into this further, but I guess one
caveat of doing this in the kernel is the keyboard might not be
accessible until Linux starts up.
I've never used the option in question, but I'd expect you'd be correct
Also, I just checked your website and saw you wrote _Linux Samba
Server Administration_. I wanted to also say Thanks for that book,
because I've used it for years to setup and maintain various Samba
Thanks for the kind words.
I haven't used it much since moving to Samba 3 (do you have
a newer version?),
Sybex wasn't interested in doing a revision, I'm afraid, but I did write a
new book on Samba 3 for APress: The Definitive Guide to Samba 3 (ISBN
1-59059-277-8, 2004). FWIW, the Samba developers are working towards a
Samba 4 release, but it's not expected to enter alpha for a while (3
months is a figure I was quoted recently). Samba 4 will feature better AD
integration, including the ability to act as an AD server.

Though OT for this post, awesome news about Samba 4. When Samba 3
came out, it fixed TONS of our problems since back then we were using
a Windows domain. Now we are on AD, so if Samba 4 has better
integration, then bonus as well!
As for the keyboard, I didn't realize the actual output was different
between an AT and XT keyboard, but being the only converters I can
find are like $95 online, I'll just put these old keyboards back in
the deep dark realms of my closet.
